Deck Import

Secret Paladin is the deck list that is currently terrorizing the meta after the recent release of The Grand Tournament. The deck is made possible by a single new card: Mysterious Challenger. The card has become known as “Dr. 6” because of its similar impact on the game as Dr. Boom (Dr. 7). The deck can run as many as five (Eye for an Eye and Sacred Trial aren’t worth running) different secrets, so when Mysterious Challenger hits the board your Paladin gets lit up like a Christmas tree (five secrets displayed on the Hero Portrait looks like a tree).

This deck has resurrected numerous cards that saw virtually no play: Noble Sacrifice, Redemption, and Secretkeeper. The idea is to flood the board with sticky minions, and get to turn 6 where you have hopefully drawn into your Mysterious Challenger (you even would keep it in your mulligan). You’ll have minions getting buffed left and right once your opponent attempts to make an attack with a minion. Noble Sacrifice triggers, then you get an Avenge, then your Noble Sacrifice minion is resurrected by Redemption. Plus, if you had any type of board, Competitive Spirit triggers and buffs the whole thing.

Secret Paladin Deck List Update – April 2016 (Season 25)

Loatheb in for a Sludge Belcher has seen some play, and Divine Favor is always an option if you feel like you’re playing a lot of control decks.

Secret Paladin Mulligan Guide and Strategy

This deck is so well-rounded now that keeping Mysterious Challenger in your mulligan is no longer necessary. Secrets should be pitched back into the deck immediately. Secretkeeper, Shielded Minibot, Haunted Creeper, and Muster for Battle are the cards you’re looking to keep. Knife Juggler is a worthwhile keep if you have Haunted Creeper or Muster for Battle already.

Secret Paladin Tech Cards

Blessing of Kings is an option if you don’t have Keeper of Uldaman. A second Truesilver Champion or Consecration can go in place of Coghammer, but understand that Coghammer can swing games by completely destroying your opponent’s board while maintaining your own.

Secret Paladin Card Substitutions (Replacements)

Keep in mind that replacements for cards are rarely ever going to be perfect. It’s usually easiest to try and come close to what the card accomplishes, or double up an already existing card in the deck.

Secret Paladin Combos and Synergies

The main reason to play this deck is for Mysterious Challenger and the five potential secrets he can add to your board for 6-mana. You are generally looking to have some kind of board before you make this play, but just dropping him on turn five or six is enough to change the game.

Muster for Battle and Knife Juggler is a pretty potent combination that can take out key cards on your opponent’s board.

Keeper of Uldaman can be played both offensively and defensively. Play it on one of your 1/1s to make a good trade, or target one of their large minions so you can deal with it with a Truesilver Champion.

    How do you recover when you draw 2-3 secrets in your opening hand? With 9 1 drops, I don’t see how this deck doesn’t run out of steam easily. I’ve been playing all different versions of it, and I dunno, I’m struggling with that. I took out one secret and put in Divine Favor, but is that bad?

    • Evident - Author
      April 15, 2016 at 9:08 am

      Divine Favor is a solid card in this deck. Sometimes you just get unlucky with your draws, just make sure to mulligan away any secrets and you should be fine.

      You can still play this in Wild, but I think Eater of Secrets will be run a lot there to counter Secret Paladin, after the nerfs I wanted to craft this deck, shame that Blizzard releases those counter-cards. FeelsBadMan

    So I m trying to get a paladin deck going and midrange and controlish versions seem weak, so i thought of crafting the dr 6s for this deck being the only missing pieces.

    Is it worth doing that having the upcoming expansion realeased soon? Will secret pally still be a thing?

    • Evident - Author
      March 16, 2016 at 7:11 am

      I wouldn’t craft them right now unless you really think you’re going to be playing Wild, but we don’t know for sure how good Secret Paladin will be after the expansion releases.

    • Attackdaddy
      April 19, 2016 at 4:40 pm

      Midrange is still strong when favorable trades are taken. It’s hard to lose board control. Used midrange to push to 10 then secret to push to 5.. Dr. 6 is necessary for a secret paladin deck

    • Evident - Author
      March 13, 2016 at 8:52 am

      Sunwalker, Ragnaros, Loatheb, or just go with a second Truesilver.

    what should be swapped for keeper of aldaman?

    • Evident - Author
      February 29, 2016 at 10:07 am

      Second Haunted Creeper or Truesilver. You could also just add Divine Favor.

  14. Techi
    February 15, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    – 1 Secretkeeper + 1 Divine favor
    – 1 Sludge + 1 Loatheb
    -1 Keeper + 1 Blessing of Kings

    Overall this allows you to comeback from bad situations

    • Deldax
      March 11, 2016 at 1:23 am

      I like your replacements, but I would rather put the Blessing of kings instead of a shredder, rather than keeper, because keeper can deal with strong enemy minions or buff your weaker ones, but shredder might come with bad RNG (Lets say a Doomsayer or Explosive sheep that kills off your Silver hands)

    • Simone Lazzari
      May 3, 2016 at 4:17 pm

      I really don’t like the Blessing of Kings when you have an Uldaman, you basically get a BGH-like effect for 4 mana and a solid body, I would go with the -2/-2 stats for an added effect like that honestly, not mentioning that without a minion on board, Keeper of Uldaman is plain better than BoK…….

  15. ExMayor
    January 31, 2016 at 8:35 am

    It’s obvious that this deck is Tier 1 but in which Tier would you put the aggro version of this deck (no Tirion, Boom etc.)? Thanks in advance for the reply! ^^

  16. Warangel

    This deck is a great basic starting point but I’ve found the key with net decks is striking a balance between optimization and personalization. Don’t change them at all to suit your play style and you generally won’t have as much success. At least I don’t. Change them TOO much and you break the deck.

    So I swapped out two cards and this deck has been working really well for me (climbed into the Top 10) ever since.

    I traded one Secret Keeper for a Divine Favor. Too many times I found myself at a loss for cards and Divine Favor helps keep me from losing momentum. Plus, considering you generally want to save secrets for Mysterious Challenger, playing two Secret Keepers seems like overkill.

    I also swapped out a Sludge Belcher for a Loatheb. This was painful. I love me some Belcher! But I’ve found that being able to lay down that Loatheb on turn 5, right before you bring out Mysterious Challenger, keeps many opponents from clearing the board. Because, let’s face it, they know what you’re about to do on Turn 6. And even on Turns 7, 8 and 9 Loatheb provides great value.

    So that’s what’s working for me. I’m no Hearthstone Pro. Just a guy at the bottom end of the Top 10, trying to work his way up the ladder.

    • Evident - Author
      January 25, 2016 at 9:01 am

      Blessing of Kings for Uldaman, and you could try Sunwalker or second Truesilver for Tirion.

  19. Cleggman
    January 23, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    When you have the dream, Secret Keeper, Coin, Avenge. Secret Keeper, Nobel Sac. And your opponent counters perfectly with Wrath, Innervate, Keeper, after ramping on 2, Innervate boom on turn 4… This is why druid is better than pally.

    Hello, I’m getting wreckd all the time from rank 7 to rank 9 so far, i have exact the same deck as shown and i’m playing it properly, to bad that i draw bad cards everytime.. any help?

    • Orpheus
      January 22, 2016 at 9:06 pm

      Hello,

      maybe there’s something wrong in your Mulligan ?

      Also, what are the decks that beat you ? How do you lose ?

      I ended up including a Kezan because I met too many Mages (and mirrors, and hunters, but I mostly lost to Mages), and a Divine Favor to fix my draw problems.

  21. Orpheus
    January 19, 2016 at 12:31 am

    I’ve been playing this all through the ladder with much success.

    My small variations :

    no Repentance (useless most of the time, I don’t even fear it in mirror) and 2 Redemption ; just one Belcher in favor of a Blessing of Kings (which makes it a little more aggro I guess).

    I’ve been toying with Kezan and Horreb, but they never seemed to be better choices than, well, anything else.

    But now I’m at Rank 5 and meet many mirrors (most of them I beat), hunters and other very aggro decks (I usually win) but also Freeze Mage.

    So I’m wondering about putting Kezan or Horreb in again, but on what ? One Uldaman ?

    I’m also thinking about including one Quartermaster, to make it more fierce.

    And the last idea for one different slot is a Healbot. I know, it isn’t usually played in such a deck, but it would help against fast aggro, and even more so against Freeze (just keep it until after Alextrasza).

    So what do you think about including one of these 4, and by removing what ?

    • rtz
      February 19, 2016 at 10:29 am

      Horreb is a must have at this rank (freeze and druid, help vs tempomage). healbot look like bad here try lay on hands if you meet many face.decks.

    January 6, 2016 at 10:46 am

    I swapped out 1 secret keeper for 1 divine favor and my match ups have just skyrocketed against various lock, warrior, and priest decks. Double keeper is pretty lackluster and only really good if a) you drew terrible or b) your opponent is playing a heavy amount of secrets as well. Never running out of steam or playing heavy to set up a massive return is just too powerful to ignore.

    • Ch1cken Slayer
      January 10, 2016 at 12:44 pm

      true! i noticed myself that the decks needs card draw, i just couldn’t select a card to change for divine favor

    January 4, 2016 at 2:30 am

    Hey guys, I am running this list very strongly with no prior experience with the deck i ended the stream 13-4 in my first grind session. I did make 1 change i cut 1 sludge belcher for 1 loatheb. Seems to make a huge difference against the freeze mages and control priests I have been running up against. But i have been hearing alot of buzz about Keeper of Uldaman and wondered what your thoughts were. Is there a reason you elected not to run it? Same question with Aldor Peacekeeper. I’ve seen quite a few variations and many of them are playing these cards. Why is this list not? I have been toying with the idea of cutting the secret keepers for another creeper and a Keeper since most of the time they are unimpressive.

    • Azr1th
      January 4, 2016 at 2:32 am

      ADD ON: why no repentance or Sacred Trial? both seem at least decent to run. Just no room? or is there a specific reason they didnt make the cut?

      • Evident - Author
        January 4, 2016 at 9:48 am

        Well, those are considered the weaker of the secrets, plus they don’t have an affect on your board. Also, the idea is to draw as few secrets as possible and use Mysterious Challenger to pull them out of your deck. The more you run, the more likely you are going to draw them.

    • Evident - Author
      January 4, 2016 at 9:46 am

      This is a “meta” list, so I try to compile the average list you’ll see on the ladder. It’s true, I’ve seen some people playing Keeper of Uldaman. I’ve also seen Aldor Peacekeeper show up in the deck previously. I think it’s just personal preference, but if I see a lot more of it then I will revise the list.

      • Juscallmenik
        January 4, 2016 at 1:41 pm

        This is definitely a great “average” list because it’s about what you’ll see. People tech in all kinds of things. Aldors, Uldamans, Divine Favors, Rags, Equality etc etc.

        You should probably add a section that highlights variations of the deck. Like “Vs control cut this and add this” and “vs aggro cut this and add this”. Because typically people add these cards for specific matchups.

        For example on my Legend run. I started using secret pally. I cut the secret keepers and replaced them with Zombie Chows. I felt like they had a bigger impact on turn 1 vs aggro. It worked out for me.

        Hey I got a problem and I would be really glad if you can help me I got 1509 dust and I opened a golden Illidian stormrage today.If I discenchan him for 1600 dust I will have enough to finish this deck.I play the game about 4 months but I just can’t decide what to do cause many suggest me to wait for changes in spring what’s your opinion and btw what to do with Illidian ?

        • Evident - Author
          February 16, 2016 at 2:10 pm

          I would personally wait for the changes in Spring. There’s going to be nerfs and a new expansion coming so there’s going to be a lot of changes in the near future. Secret Paladin in particular is going to be hit hard by the format changes, so unless you plan on playing the Wild format I wouldn’t craft it.

    Too many High manacost cards, most of the time you will get +4 mana cards on opening hand, and it will ruin your early game.

    Hi guys, I was trying with this deck, but in many time I run out of cards… I think Its needs one card to get cards… What do you think is the best card to get cards that fits this deck? Divine favor, Lay on Hands or Solemn Vigil… Sorry if my english is too bad 😛

    Cheers!

    • Evident - Author
      December 28, 2015 at 9:38 am

        Which card do you replace for Divine Favor? However, I was thinking about Lay on hands…But I dont know if is so slow for this deck… What do you think? Thanks!

        • Evident - Author
          December 28, 2015 at 1:53 pm

          Maybe a Belcher, but now that I think about it more it might not fit in this deck. Lay on Hands could be a better fit.

    I lacked Tirion, so I replaced him with a Big Game Hunter.
    Also removed one Muster for a Divine Favor, which improved my overall winrate against control.

  35. Joman
    December 23, 2015 at 12:09 am

    I don’t have Tirion, saving up to craft him, but in the meanwhile what would be a better replacement? Loatheb, sylvanis or kel’thuzad?

    • Evident - Author
      December 23, 2015 at 8:39 am

      Loatheb can help seal up a game so I would go with him.

    I have this exact same deck, and have been very successfull with it. Only change I made ( wich made it more consistent imo.) was adding one Divine Favor instead of Haunted Creeper

  45. Alvaro
    November 21, 2015 at 8:08 am

    What card could I replace instead of the spiders

    • Evident - Author
      November 21, 2015 at 10:28 am

      I’d consider Argent Horserider or maybe even Worgen Infiltrator. You want a sticky minion.

    • spank
      December 11, 2015 at 12:13 pm

      neither argent horserider or worgen infiltrator are good replacements. worgen is a one drop, and haunted creeper provides three bodies to deal with, which works out perfectly for competitive spirit and blessing of kings targets. infiltrator is good for getting that sure 2 dmg to face in which you do not need in this deck as much as the bodies. argent horserider is three mana for a charging 2 damage, again not what this deck wants. this deck isn’t a face deck it’s a value deck.

      what fits in perfectly and in my opinion much better then creeper if you aren’t running competitive spirit at all, which i do not, is annoyotron. annoyotron takes TWO attacks instead of ZERO to reach your face/other minions compared to haunted creeper, takes at least 2 attacks to kill, has the same power and toughness, and taunt. annoyotron is perfect for early ranks on your way to rank 5-legend slowing down all those face hunters and aggro shamans you will face.

    Replacement for haunted creeper?

    • Evident - Author
      November 8, 2015 at 9:51 am

      I would try Gilbin Stalker as a sticky minion, or you could try Flame Juggler. Haunted Creeper is a really good card though, so I’d try to get it if you’re serious about this deck.

      • note
        January 3, 2016 at 9:29 am

        Well if you don’t have spiders then you cannot have avenge either …

  47. Chinto
    November 1, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    Question:how would one tech AGAINST this deck? Kezan mystic hardly makes a dent.

    • buttermellow

      You’re right with Kezan. The method I see most have success with, and try to use myself, is to play around the huge swing of turn 6.

      The best way is to make sure he has an empty board when he plays MC and you can a disposable minion. You then attack into MC, kill the ‘Get Down’, then hopefully you use spot removal like polymorph, BGH, PW: Death on MC.

      You waste the avenge, get down, the revival secret, and competitive spirit (because will only buff the ‘get down’ minion which is negligible.

      That tactic should work with most classes, and if your deck can’t personally manage that, then it is simply ill-suited to take on secret paladin decks – WHICH IS FINE if you perform well against all the other meta decks and achieve >50% win rate overall.

    Made a video on highlighting this deck’s strong points, giving some general guidance in how it’s played and then talking about my thoughts on it while showing off some clips of the deck in play. My channel is relatively new so any feedback would be greatly appreciated 🙂 https://youtu.be/ke535jpTDMs

    i have only one MYSTERIOUS CHALLENGER, by which one can change (I have all adventures)

      I don’t know if you can play this deck very well without two Mysterious Challenger. I’d go with a Truesilver Champion if you still want to play the deck.

    Very good deck in tier 15 (went 8-2) W/L ratio so far. It’s true that I was lucky and got every hand the champion, but still by turn 6, my opponent has 15 or less health.

    how about removing the secret keepers and abusive sergeant and adding tirion and dr.7 for late game and adding a blood knight or 2 for a repentance for a devastating 12/12 in the midgame because of argent squires and shielded minibots

    that way you have other big threats other than the challenger, plus you can burn your opponents removals on the blood knights much more faster and have no way to deal with tirion and dr.7 in the late game.

    also, i would keep the piloted shredders and haunted creepers as early ‘sticky’ minions to maintain board control throughout the match.

    please correct me on my view point if i’m wrong, i’m sure many others have better ideas than i do.

    I’m confused as to why there are 6x and 3x of one card? I thought you could only have 2x of a specific card per deck? Sorry if I’m completely noobing this up right now but, how is this possible?

      The left side with the blue is Mana Cost, and the right side in gray is the amount.

    My deck runs a few diffrent things compared to this and its great for me. Intead of knife i took flame juggler, (last matches a simple 2-1 card have killed knife) intead of favor i took boom and tirion, instead of aquire i took zombie chow. I dont run any creeper instead i use double weapon. The reason for no divine favor is that i nearly never over play o one turn and most other decks now is aggro or mid range which doesnt make u draw much.

    I am new to hearthstone and I have a golden mogor the ogre, should I disenchant him to get this awesome deck or keep him and bask in his not so glory.

    • Evident - Author
      September 24, 2015 at 8:22 am

      It’s generally a bad idea to disenchant legendaries (they are expensive to craft), but Mogor the Ogre is pretty bottom tier and if you don’t have a lot of other cards you will probably be fine disenchanting him.

        I’ve recently gotten a golden Fjola and so far I only have Dr. Boom,Sylvanas and Al’akir(got him today),should I dust her? I really wanna build control and Chinese priest decks 😛

        • Evident - Author
          October 26, 2015 at 8:44 am

          I would probably dust her if I had another legendary I really wanted to craft. Golden legendaries are really hard to come by, so make sure you think it through before you do it!

      I personally think you should disenchant mogor for either Tirion or some other epics.

      Going to replace the haunted creepers with ironbeak owls, it should alleviate the issue. Repentance alone isn’t enough to deal with the taunts.

      • Arma
        September 17, 2015 at 9:28 pm

        After playing one game the ironbeaks payed off tremendously where I’d otherwise lose. Highly recommended change

    been running +1 equity +1 Tirion +2 Azure drake -1 secret keeper -1 repentance -2 shredder, seams a bit more flexible and the late is greatly improved with tirion

    Could a Quartermaster be run in place of a Shredder? I just really want to run Quartermasters what with the musters already included. Could it act like a backup plan or stalling if you can’t find a Challenger?

    • Jojabi
      September 11, 2015 at 4:18 pm

      Forget Quartermaster. Just won three games in a row, one of which I never even saw Mysterious Challenger and still was way ahead the whole game. I feel a nerf is gonna hit this build in some way shape or form.

      This deck just poops on Warrior anything really. However I seems to lose just about all match ups to Hunters. They are just faster. Have to god had most times and that really isn’t a promise.

    Haunted creeper is irreplacable….dr balance will ruin your draws. This deck is nearly perfect….I dont run leper gnomes. Secretkeeper is not replacable. I use 1 truesilver for board control….and a blood knight in place of leper gnomes. Nerfing this would be crazy. Its a simple aggro deck. If people cant beat it….they suck at playing. This deck is beatable….

    • Randy
      September 8, 2015 at 7:14 am

      Main reason I dont include late game or bigger minions….gg by turn 7 almost every game. People just dont know how to defend it yet. Lmfao at how many really really
      bad players there are

    • spank
      December 11, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      haunted creeper is definitely replaceable and serves no specific purpose in this deck. Secretkeeper is most certainly replaceable, as a one drop isn’t that big of a deal in such a midrange deck. I’m not saying they are bad cards or do not arguably have a place in the deck, but saying something is irreplaceable is an incredibly powerful exaggeration, proven wrong by the countless people winning tournaments/achieving legend without such cards in their secret paladin decks.

    • Vlade
      December 13, 2015 at 10:35 am

      They should nerf it, because its weak against just like 2 decks, and yes, people can beat it, but with the actual meta is pretty hard if you dont play hunter… saying that a deck is beatable doesnt mean that its balanced… btw i think that they should nerf the mysterious challenger and make him play max 3 secrets or something like that (still a very good card)

    Would 2 x Truesilver instead of Haunted Creepers be any better?

    • Pommesfee
      September 3, 2015 at 11:15 am

      I’ve seen people play it this way, so I guess it’s up to preference. Though I like the creeper more.

    • Izicial

      If you face a lot of patron warriors it would definitely help remove them better than the creepers.

    I hate this deck with passion. It’s everywhere lately and seems to pull off wins even after you clear the board and fought through 10 secrets. I’m just glad that Paladin doesn’t have the same weapon as Hunter.

    Hello Mysterious Challenger, meet Flare.

    • Pumpcheese
      September 2, 2015 at 11:00 pm

      I have been Flared once. However I drew another Mysterious Challenger the following turn so it was moot. However I felt so emotionally defeated when I saw my opponent cast Flare. Such a simple card that can take down a whole setup. Good times.

      This deck is pretty consistent though. I don’t run abusive sergeant or secret keeper. Instead I run more sticky creatures like Harvest Golem and Murloc Knight. The value from Murloc Knight is too good not to have at least a one-of auto include. I also run Dr. Boom for late game survival.

      • Hans
        November 21, 2015 at 11:25 pm
